Invitation to The Hague Conference

ICEJ: Dr. Jurgen Buhler

Dear friends and prayer partners,

The nation of Israel is currently facing three very serious legal challenges in the world’s leading judicial forums in The Hague.

First, the International Court of Justice (ICJ) has been asked by the United Nations General Assembly for an advisory opinion on whether Israel’s administration in the territories of Judea and Samaria captured in 1967 amounts to an “illegal occupation.” Second, South Africa has petitioned the same ICJ to declare that Israel is committing genocide in Gaza.

Third, the nearby International Criminal Court has opened an official probe into Israel’s alleged violations of the laws of warfare and humanitarian rights in its battle against Palestinian terrorism, while the ICC’s chief prosecutor also recently asked the Court to issue arrest warrants against Israel’s most senior leaders for alleged war crimes in Gaza.

These legal actions are all the contemptible fruit of a deliberate, long-term Palestinian strategy to use lawfare tactics to strip Israel of its right of self-defense and to force a dividing of the Land of Israel to unilaterally create a Palestinian state, which would then carry on their relentless campaign to eradicate the Jewish state of Israel.

These are ominous developments, and as Christians, we must awaken to the lateness of the hour. We are currently only one vote away in the UN Security Council from the nations imposing a dividing of the land of Israel, including Jerusalem, in a way that could trigger the divine judgment of the nations warned of in Joel 3:1–2.

On July 3–4, 2024, Christian leaders and intercessors from around the world will be gathering in The Hague to stand against these legal assaults on Israel and to pray for our nations. This gathering, entitled The Trial, also will issue a decree in Israel’s defense that will be submitted to the justices at the International Court of Justice in the Peace Palace.

The International Christian Embassy Jerusalem has joined this timely initiative to stand with Israel and intervene for our nations. We urge you to join us in The Hague from July 3–4.

We hope you can be there!

Blessings from Jerusalem,

Dr. Juergen Buehler

Stand for Israel. Join us in The Hague.
